Transforming World (Triratna International Gathering 2019)

by Prasadacarin (2019)

In the third and final talk from the 2019 Triratna International Gathering, Prasadacarin explores the theme of 'transforming world'. Taking 'everything is burning with the three fires of greed, hatred and delusion' as his starting point, he poses the question: what are the alternatives to these fires?

The three jewels of the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha are a framework that could transform the world and Prasadacarin draws out what each jewel or refuge can offer.

Building on the previous days' themes of transforming self and transforming through Sangha, Prasadacarin expresses the conviction that making the Dharma available is our main responsibility and shares his confidence will help fundamentally change society for the better.

Recorded at Adhisthana, August 2019.

This talk is part of the series Alchemy of the Dharma (Triratna International Gathering 2019).
